John Stamos, whose Broadway credits include Bye Bye Birdie, Nine and How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying, will guest star on the Jan. 22 episode of NBC's "The New Normal."



The new episode, which is entitled "Gaydar," will air at 9:30 PM ET; check local listings.

"When Shania (Bebe Wood) meets Rocky's (NeNe Leakes) new crush, Chris (Mark Consuelos), she claims that her 'gaydar' is going off and that Chris might be more interested in men," according to NBC. "Elsewhere, Jane (Ellen Barkin) is wondering if her fellow realtor, Brice (John Stamos), is just a fashionable guy or if he is into fashionable guys. Bryan (Andrew Rannells) decides to throw a dinner party that doubles as a Gay or Straight fact-finding mission. Meanwhile, David (Justin Barth) is struggling with how the world will treat their future son. Georgia King also stars."

The upcoming Jan. 15 episode, entitled "Stay-At-Home Dad," is described as such: "After a failed attempt at finding a nanny, Bryan (Andrew Rannells) and David (Justin Bartha) contemplate the idea of a stay-at-home dad. Both express interest in the role and decide to practice parenting by sending Goldie (Georgia King) to a spa and taking in Shania (Bebe Wood). Bryan, convinced that he is the man for the job, gives Rocky (NeNe Leakes) a shot at her dream career by leaving her in charge at "Sing," but he soon finds that producing a child's life is much more difficult than producing a television show. Later, David confidently takes over and quickly realizes that despite his best intentions parenting is not an exact science."

The new Ryan Murphy-Allison Adler comedy "The New Normal" stars Book of Mormon Tony nominee Andrew Rannells and stage and screen actor Justin Bartha (Lend Me a Tenor) as a couple longing for a child.
